So, wait -- is the rooftop wedding with the Dave Matthews Band back on? As a friend of the blog said, "What? Hootie wasn't available?"

The National Enquirer is reporting John Edwards has proposed to Reille Hunter, the mother of his love child. It is a complete blizzard in DC but we are now in a dither to get the latest National Enquirer, which includes a "sneak peek of their love nest on Bald Head Island - fit for a disgraced 2 time Presidential loser and new age mother and child!"

From the Enquirer story:

"John dropped the proposal bomb on Rielle shortly before he issued his statement" that he was indeed Frances' father, a close source divulged.

"John knew Rielle had been waiting for a proposal for two long years. Since they've gotten involved, she's followed every order he gave her, going on a cross-country cover-up, hiding away during her pregnancy and after giving birth for the sake of his presidential aspirations.

"Rielle never uttered a peep about their affair publicly, and remained loyal to John. John felt she deserved to know that he wanted to raise their child together, and wanted Rielle in his life as his partner."

Edwards reportedly told Hunter that once his wife died, he'd marry Hunter in a rooftop ceremony in New York and the Dave Matthews Band would play. Trust the NY Daily News to report Matthews' reaction:

"He didn’t ask me," Matthews says, but if he had, "I would make a fair bet that I would have said no to such an offer."

"Or, I would have charged him some incredible amount of money," he said, laughing.

Now, where exactly is Bald Head Island?
